Wec Nuclear Structural Steelwork Projects:

WEC Group has earned Rolls Royce Sabre qualification, securing a supplier panel spot, post the successful completion of a significant project for Rolls Royce Submarine division. We delivered the structural steelwork for Rolls Royce’s EMMA Stores Cells & Racking Systems at their nuclear facility in Derby.

Our team ensured timely completion and adherence to stringent nuclear standards. Our team completed the full fabrication and installation on-site over several months, and their approach to safety and flexibility were highly commended by the client. This consistent engineering excellence paved the way for other large contracts.

As the demand for clean, reliable energy continues to grow, the role of nuclear power has never been more vital. At WEC Nuclear, we’re honoured to play a part in building the foundation for a sustainable energy future. With our unmatched expertise, commitment to quality, and dedication to innovation, we’re leading the way in nuclear structural steelwork, driving progress, and shaping a brighter tomorrow for generations to come.
